Jade Tree United soccer team begins its 2005/2006 season on Sunday, November 27 with a bye week. The team’s first match, as well as the entire season, will be announced within the next week.
The JTU team has undergone some dramatic changes in the off-season, with Manager Darren Walters acquiring some serious new talent. Mostly culled from members of the Stonecutters team, JTU has picked up a trio of Mikes: Mexican International Mike Leyva, youthful talent and Golden Boot winner Mike Reed, and defensive monster Michael Hoffman. JTU has also added Celtic warrior Alex Milne and a new â€˜keep in Bad Ass Brian (last name withheld for security reasons) in order to keep the ball out of the net.
In addition to these new players, many JTU faves have returned: Cuban All-Stars Victor Alvarez and Alfredo Agra, Myspace.com celebrity and Jade Tree co-Owner Tim Owen (who spent most of last season on the injury list), Under 21 US Internationals Ryan Mann and Andrew Agra, Modell’s over 35 Team Spirit award winner Casey Gallucio, and Player/Manager Darren Walters.
The Orange fire has just barely begun to glow, so get in the spirit and get stoked!
